Final NRMP® Residency Match 2013 Results Show 99.4 Percent of Residency Positions Filled

The NRMP Main Residency Match® final data results show 99.4 percent of positions were filled, the highest position fill rate in NRMP history.

"The 61 positions unfilled at the conclusion of SOAP were in the following specialties:
Anesthesiology: 4
Child neurology: 17
Dermatology: 1
Family medicine : 5
Internal medicine: 6
Neurology: 6
Pathology: 1
Pediatrics: 2
Preliminary general surgery: 10
Psychiatry: 7
Radiation oncology: 1
Radiology: 1

Applicant Facts
According to Signer, “More than 13,000 applicants were eligible to participate in SOAP because they were fully or partially unmatched. Of those, 2,076 were U.S. allopathic seniors, 980 of whom were completely unmatched.” By the end of Match Week, 452 more U.S. seniors had obtained positions, leaving 528 with no position.

Overall, 97 percent of U.S. seniors obtained positions in the 2013 Match, compared with 98.5 percent in 2012 when 262 had no position. Because the SOAP process was implemented for the first time in 2012, no data are available for prior years.

Signer said she is aware of concerns among medical schools about the number of U.S. seniors who did not obtain positions in The Match, but is not surprised the number is higher this year than last. “Almost 1,000 more U.S. seniors were competing for positions in 2013 than in 2012,” said Signer.

“There are many reasons why applicants don’t match. Some overestimate their qualifications and apply only to very competitive specialties. If they don’t apply to and rank programs in less competitive specialties, they are in danger of not matching,” said Signer.

She added that some program directors at U.S. teaching hospitals will not rank Match applicants who have not passed the medical licensure qualifying examinations prior to the deadline for submitting their lists to NRMP.

A full report on the 2013 Main Residency Match will be available in early May 2013 at"
